Monster Chocolate and Almond Cookie

By Rumblingtummy @RumblingTummi
Son brought home some roasted almonds.  Since he is on stay home notice for 2 weeks, I thought it will be handy to have cookies in the jar just in case he is hungry.

Tried out this recipe that was posted on an online baking school.  

Monster Chocolate and Almond Cookie

I turned them into Monster Chocolate and Almond Cookie just for fun.  The dough weighs 140g and it is bigger than the can drink base.Learning experience:

The dough is easy to handle but I was not happy with the texture.  My girl commented it tasted like scones and so were a friend.  Taste-wise it is good but the texture is neither chewy nor crunchy.

Not sure where I went wrong.Adapted

What you need:

75g unsalted butter, soften130g castor sugar1 egg
225g plain flour3g baking soda3g baking powder¼ tsp salt
160g chocolate chunks, chop100g roasted almond, chop
Cream butter with sugar until light.
Beat in egg.
Sift in plain flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into the batter.  Mix well.
Add in chocolate chunks and almonds.  Fold until evenly distributed.
Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.  

Scoop about 70g per cookie and place onto a lined pan. (I make 2 @ 140g for some of the dough so need to bake longer)

Bake for 180°C for 15 mins or until brown.
